Algae report number 1, 2014

Type: Report
Author: Ann-Turi Skjevik


A new cooperation between SMHI and the Finnish SYKE has started. This is the first AlgAware with data from samplings with the Finnish ship R/V Aranda. All phytoplankton samples from the Skagerrak, the Kattegat and the Baltic Sea contained low species diversities and all of the cell counts were low. The chlorophyll a concentrations were consequently low why no further detailed information will be presented in this report, only a species list and chlorophyll diagrams. Chlorophyll data are missing from the Kattegat stations which caused the empty diagrams on page 7.
